Boston Red Sox To Start Brian Johnson Against Toronto Blue Jays With Eduardo Rodriguez On Paternity Leave

The Boston Red Sox will have to resort to using a different pitcher to open up their series on the road against Toronto with scheduled starter Eduardo Rodriguez unable to make his start due to paternity leave.

With the birth of his second child, Rodriguez is headed to the paternity list, which means he must miss at least one game, but no more than three games. With E-rod going on the paternity list on Sunday the Sox had to make several moves to fill up their roster.

The first one came in the form of recalling reliever Ben Taylor who came up on Marathon Monday for one game and ended up pitching 1/3 of an inning in the seventh giving up a hit to Steven Souza Jr. which made it a 4-3 game before Taylor was able to get Logan Morrison to fly out to end the seventh.

With Taylor getting sent back to AAA-Pawtucket after Monday’s game the Red Sox recalled starting pitcher Brian Johnson who is slated to take Rodriguez’s start against the Blue Jays at the Rogers Centre.

Johnson has allowed just two runs over 10 2/3 innings in his first two starts with Triple-A Pawtucket. His first outing was interrupted when he was struck with a line drive in the back of the head. But the lefty made his next start on schedule, giving up a run on four hits over 6 2/3 innings against Syracuse.

Rodriguez has a 5.23 ERA in his two starts, allowing three runs (2 earned) over 5 1/3 innings in his last outing against Tampa.

Red Sox Continue To Be Cryptic On David Price

The Boston Red Sox have been very cryptic on the status of pitcher David Price. Price has been on the DL for quite some time now after initially shrugging the injury off claiming it wasn’t anything serious.

But in the last couple of weeks the Red Sox and John Farrell, in particular, have been very secretive and unsure of his status. The issue is, the opportunity for a rehab start isn’t looking realistic. Price has yet to throw off a mound and with the minor league seasons starting to close in the coming weeks, Price’s season may be done.

Farrell made a comment ahead of Wednesday nights game with the Indians where he claims he is being “realistic”.

I don’t know if I was pessimistic. I think I was just being realistic with that he was currently involved in when you realistically look at the calender and then what the progression is needed to get back to that. I’m not ruling it out, but I think at the same time being realistic.

“Untill he gets on a mound, that’s when we’ll start to get a better idea of connecting to the end date”.

Price remains on the 10-day-dl which he was placed on July 28th with left elbow inflammation. He has been able to throw off of flat ground, but the mound is still an obstacle he has yet to face.

Price has a 3.82 ERA in 11 starts for Boston this season with 66 innings pitched. Right now, it is fair to question why the Boston Red Sox and Price didn’t opt for Tommy John Surgery when this issue first kicked up back in Spring Training.

Pawtucket Red Sox Lose 6-2 To Bisons Despite Good Start By Elias

The Pawtucket Red Sox dropped game 2 of their 4 game series with the Buffalo Bisons on Tuesday night 6-2 at McCoy Stadium. There were 6,502 fans at McCoy Stadium tonight.

Roenis Elias Pitched much better then what his pitching line showed. He gave up 4 runs in 7 innings, but it should have only been 2 run. Elias was also pretty close to doing something that Craig Kimbrel and Rick Porcello have done this season.

The Paw Sox saw all of their offense from a two run home run from Matt Dominguez in the 4th inning. It was a home run that barley got out of the park.
